Re: I hate to say it...

Heath,

Perhaps instead of just replacing you, a few people could volunteer to assist. That way with multiple people, the site will always have coverage?

Re: Video of our trip to islamorada for lobster mini week

This is awesome, my family and I just left Marathon. I counted 4 macs including what I think was you leaving on US1 as we were coming in Friday.

I gotta bring my Mac down here. I can't get over how easy accessing the big water is. There aren't the white knuckle inlets like we regularly get in NC.

Re: I'm an A/C convert

+1 for the Billybox. I've found myself getting out of bed in the middle of the night to turn the A/C down on more than 1 occasion. Plus I like the extra step getting on and off the deck, stretching out and it's fairly popular for people to sit on facing forward too (for some reason). In the winter, ...

Re: 26X Auto Pilot

We sailed down the Cape Fear to Southport last weekend, Mr. Bungee worked like a charm while under sail letting us kick back and only make small adjustments from time to time.

Some local Mac Owners and others are planning a trip starting midday on Friday June 15th from Carolina Beach down the River (Following the tide out) to Southport Marina ~14 miles away. After dinner, carousing and general merry making Friday night the group will follow the tide back up the river Satu...

Re: Active in Wrightsville Beach, NC

Awesome, I'm down in Waterfronte Villas in Carolina Beach with another 26x.

A buddy keeps his at Federal Point, and WindWager lives in the area too.

We need to do a meet up!

Re: 26X Auto Pilot

Opie, are you still around the Cape Fear Area?

I'm trying to get a mini-round up with the 3 Macs I know down here, and I saw your videos but didn't know if you were still around.

Re: Fuel Filter

I use an external Sierra 90GPH Filter/Water Separator (looks a lot like a truck oil filter) ever since I got bad gas that ruined a great day on the water, and my Boat-upgrade savings account. I mounted mine on the back bulkhead of the gas locker on the starboard side. 1 hose reaches a gas on in eith...

Re: Rigging for single handed sailing

Bill EZ Cleats, one of the best things I've done to make sailing easier.

Now I don't have lines running through blocks back to the winches, plus it's a lot more direct an responsive to sheet in or let out my Genoa.

Re: New Custom 26X Trailer

Thanks for sharing this info Vic!

My trailer has deteriorated beyond use and I need to get a new one. (Luckily I keep mine in a slip so it's not as big of an issue)

I'll call these guys up.

Re: Docking

To get comfortable with my docking I literally spent a day pulling out of my slip and docking in another, or doing a loop and docking in mine again. Through out the day the conditions changed and I got to get more experience. I recommend having someone on the bow with a dock hook to fend off any mis...

Cape Fear Sail 6/23

Hey, I'm trying to judge interest in doing a lower Cape fear round on the weekend of June 23rd-25th. I know the one last year fell apart because I was in the middle of an ERP implementation, so I'm hoping to get this one actually going. 2 options: 1) We can meet in Southport Friday night, sail the ~...
